and who is eligible for a refund. our guest is tax foundation chief economist william mcbride. "washington journal" is next. host: >> host: the white house is to eating -- is disputing claims. the u.s. ambassador to madrid will appear to discuss buying in the country after press reports that the nsa collected information on phone calls. chiefs from those and other countries are expected to travel to the u.s. to discuss those issues. this topic, even on the sunday talk shows yesterday. for our first 45 minutes, when it comes to physically monitoring by the nsa on our allies, we want to get your thoughts on whether the u.s. should rethink spying on allies. here's how you can tell us this morning. you can also reach out to us on social media. you can always send us an e-mail to journal at c-span.org. stores today and yesterday stemming on new developments when it comes to monitoring of ally activity by the nsa. new about obama spying. thatsa denies reports obama was told in 2010 of nsa spying on angela merkel and allowed it to continue. on sunday, the german tabloid siding unknow
of obamacare under congress' general taxing power. the court noted specifically that, quote, even if the taxing power enables congress to impose a tax on not obtaining health insurance, any tax must still comply with other requirements in the constitution, unquote. mr. speaker, i want to read that one more time. even if the taxing power enables congress to impose a tax on not obtaining health insurance, any tax must still comply with other requirements in the constitution, unquote. in short, mr. speaker, obamacare was upheld as a tax. the supreme court did not and has not yet considered a challenge to the affordable care act's taxing provisions on the grounds that it violated the origination clause in the united states constitution. and, mr. speaker, it most certainly did exactly that. mr. speaker, the origination clause is found in article 1, section 7 of the constitution. and it states, quote, all bills for raising revenue shall originate in the house of representatives, unquote. in creating obamacare, senator harry reid took an entirely unrelated bill, h.r. 3590, containing just 714 words, a
as sequestration be replaced. democrats suggested that you posing with acs tax loopholes while republicans focused focus on the cost of entitlement programs. this is 2.5 hours. >> good morning. this budget committee will come to order and welcome to all of our committee hearings and committee members, the tradition in the committee is the body the last chaired it hands the gavel over and that apparently is what this is, to the new chair. so i am very proud to open this up and follow the tradition of this committee and it is my pleasure to hand this big gavel over to my colleagues. >> it looks like a keeper. [laughter] >> thank you, i will put this somewhere else. >> thank you, chairman. welcome, everyone. i feel the house members are here. and today we are considering the resolution on the budget in the house amendment and we will begin with opening statements and i will recognize myself in and senator patty murray. each house will be recognized in the order of seniority alternating between minority and majority and since there are more from the senate and the house, asked her if they have made t
for income tax purposes, the court would disregard it because this is s-corporation? >> it may well be. the fact it is an s-corporation even though it means there is this corporate forum, the net result of income and loss of penalty goes on frank and phil gilardi's income tax returns, part of schedule k. >> a complete pass through? >> yes. >> that is true of limited liabilitied corporations and associations? >> i think we deal with a you blah that impinges on fundamental first amendment freedoms the supreme court said we don't allow form to triumph over substance that. is what we're talking here. >> i think what lee says, if you're in the commercial, if you're in the commercial market you have to give up some for the greater good. >> i agree judge, it does say that but what we say that is part of the -- >> congress had some exemptions as well. >> nothing like in -- >> that is your take. you're saying the exemptions here are so overwhelming, so large in their number that you should win, i don't see you can't possibly get around lee. because lee had exemptions and the court gave it the b
with a blue cross silver atmo plan with tax credits, in that case, instead of $800 a month, it's $77 a month. and let me refer you to the interview on "meet the press" with the blue cross florida ceo. he was asked by david gregory, in florida, the oldest and largest health care plan provider, florida blue cross, confirmed it is cutting 300,000 policies. and this is what the chairman of blue cross of florida said, "we're not cutting people, and i quote, we're actually transitioning people. what we've been doing is informing folks that their plan doesn't meet the test of the essential health benefits. therefore, they have a choice of many options that we make available through the exchange, and, in fact, with subsidy, many people will be getting better plans at a lesser cost." so this has become a matter of legitimate discussion, and i think all of us would appreciate your addressing it. >> sir, again, going back to prior to the affordable care act days, these individuals in a small group or individual market had no protections. they had no guarantees of coverage, and they were still being cha
, in a balanced way. we've heard from senators about the need to modernize the tax code and move toward real tax reform. while the committee can't get it done. we can move in that direction in a substantial way. making a modest cut of only 5% of the trillion dollars a year we spend through the tax code would make huge dent in the deficit. lastly, we have to don't make some reduction in direct spending. although i know that's the area taken the hardest hit. i'll insist on doing in a way that put a circle of production around around the most vulnerable and honoring our promises to seniors, veterans, and about to retirement to protect them from cuts. chairman rhode island i know, chairman muir ray. i'm glad we have come together. we need focus not on the area of disagreement but priority we share. reducing the deficit, and ensuring our long-term prosperity. thank you. >> thank you. i've learn something. i know, you refer to yourself as delaware begans. senator ayotte. >> thank you, mr. chairman. i want to thank you and thank chairman murray for your leadership and everyone at the table who is comi
on the house position in terms of the resolution they passed back in the spring which had no tax increases, no revenue increases, assumed to the repeal of the affordable care act. it is the antithesis to the senate position. thesenate budge was resolution they passed. they had increased references -- revenues and a differences are so great it is unlikely there will be any kind of agreement to raise revenues because it could not pass in the house of representatives. host: does that doom this effort to failure? guest: now, if people had expectations that this would be a large deficit reduction package achieved by the hope for a deadline of december 13, i think that is off the table. i think there is a real possibility, not of a grand bargain, but of a bargain that will be granted that we got a bargain at all. the american public believes that congress is dysfunctional and cannot achieve anything. at a minimum, it seems there is a good possibility that both mrs. murray and mr. ryan can come together on some sort of package that will show that the house and senate can work together in a minima

be asked to pay a little bit more in taxes. maybe we might want to end all of the corporate loopholes that currently exist. again, that's not bernie sanders. january 29, 2013, poll by hart research associates. 66% of the american people believe the wealthiest 2% should pay more in taxes, and 64% of the american people believe that large corporations should pay more in taxes than they do today. well, guess what? the american people have given us a solution to the major crises facing the american people. they will want to invest in our economy, they will want to create jobs, they want to ask the wealthy and large corporations to pay more in taxes. they do not want to cut social security, medicare and medicaid. that's the real world. then you come back to washington. what are people saying? let's cut social security, medicare and medicaid, let's not invest in our infrastructure and create jobs, and in fact let's give more tax breaks to the wealthy and large corporations. so this is an alice in wonderland world. the american people are saying one thing and the lobbyists around here and ma
the pike? how many taxes are in there? nice that it is covering people, but when will it -- what is it going to cost us? i think that americans really want to know and it is not out there in black-and-white. you should be able to look and see. there are a lot of important things that have been done wrong. the president has lied to us. thank you. host: a little bit more about the book "double down." it is just coming out. even after obama named hillary clinton as secretary of state, finding their wounds, he could barely endure spending time with the clinton. he rarely contacted his democratic predecessor in the years after taking office. after midterm losses for his party, the incumbent and his inner circle realized that they still needed the popular mr. clinton. they golfed together in 2011 in an effort to get closer together. they did not even finish 18 holes. r. obama succinctly expressed his view of mr. clinton saying that he liked him in doses. to thema, who is known test campaign donor nations said that he could not name his top five vendors. he says he has no idea. after me

is also a very interesting idea to consider. put a little box in your car and pay taxes only on how many miles you drive, not on how much gas you pump or how much gas you use. the people behind this idea say it would mean the end of the gas tax and that you would be rewarded for driving less, but could it also mean an invasion of privacy? who is up? who is down some swho a winner if this actually takes place but one idea that one state is testing out and we will talk about it. >> look forward to hearing about it. >> of course. >>> it is time for your morning rhyme. our tweet of the day comes from? >> rich chosen one. that is his name. rich chosen one. he writes halloween's frights kept me up all the time but it's all right because i have "early start" in my sight. multiple use of the rhyme there. you can come up with your own any time you want. tweet us with the addresses and we appreciate it. >>> coming up next, a remarkable story. >> right now, more than ever, there seems to be a lot of hope and optimism. >> the american trying to lead iran to glory on a soccer field. we are live in te
. for individual retirement accounts, i.r.a.'s, under the tax code. today retirees are more likely to rely on 401k's and i.r.a.'s and are less likely to have defined benefit plans from their employers. at the same time, the natural products have become increasingly complex. because the rules governing the rights of investors and the responsibilities of advisors are more than 35 years old, d.o.l. is attempting to modernize these rules and -- in order to reflect the changing nature of the retirement marketplace. given these realities it is necessary for the department to make sure that the professionals offering retirement advice have a duty to put their clients' interests first before their own or at very least tell their customers that they may be conflicting. at the same time the s.e.c. is considering moving forward on a rule making that would impose a uniform fiduciary standard of conduct for broker dealers and investment advisors, consistent with the dodd-frank act. this would ensure that whatever the business model, if an individual is providing personalized investment advice out securities to
